How to train a older parrot to trust? Topic: Train case set

Question: We got our Parrot from people that couldn't handle him because if any human gets close to him he Screams wildly but he is much better now and I keep him in my room he talks a lot even when I am in the room but the thing is he won't get out of the cage unless he is alone in the room and if u come back inside he flies around screaming..... Then after a while he calms down and he will climb on to my arm and direct to my shoulder. He won't go back to the cage if I carry him, he flies again screaming to the bottom of the cage and climb it himself to get in ? Any advise please

It sounds like you can win with him. Gaining his trust is fairly simple. Just be there for him and talk to him. It sounds like he already likes you.A word of warning if he is still a little freaked out now and then, it may pay to keep him off your shoulder, just in case he decides to bite you. At this time you need to gain his confidence and his trust. Read up on Positive Reinforcement Training, this will help you set up a good relationship. If he bonds with you all will be good, in my opinion. You could join us on Tailfeathers and we can help there without some of the bad advice you get here. Jeff b: You obviously have no Idea off how to care for a bird. Clipping is cruel and using dominance. The bird need love and reassurance do you think clipping it's wing feather are going to do that? Why you work with flighted birds is so that it can fly away from you when it wants to. And when they come to you or stay with you it is because they want that. As for the bird flying into things when flighted, it is just worse when they have to concentrate on flight when clipped. Most birds that die from keel bone damage are clipped birds.

OMG. This is why good girls turn into whores. :/ I'm semi-joking. But your parents really need to lighten up. If you can't sit down and discuss this matter, write them a heart felt letter. It means alot to you, every teen wants independence, trust, and liberty. Getting drunk wasn't wise...but it's all a part of growing up and they are failing to realize, you cant be their baby forever!

It sounds like they love you very much and please dont doubt that they do love you! They want to protect you from all the bad things life has to throw at you. BUT they also need to know that you can handle the outside world! One day you will be going out into the world and you are totally unprepared cuz your not allowed in it now! Sit with them and tell them exactly how u feel! Try to reach an agreement on how long you can work- or if atleast you can meet your friend at the mall or to a movie once a week! Let them know u understand why they are the way they are- but let them know its ok to let you learn all about life too!

One of the best ways to get control is to clip its wings. Having the bird be able to launch itself away everytime it wants to is an easy way for the bird to continue this behavior. It can also be hurt by flying into objects. Once the birds wings are clipped it will have to depend on you more to get back to its cage. Then its just a matter of time to build trust. Spend lots of quality time outside the cage with him and make sure he gets a good quality diet and plenty of toys. Make sure that perches and stands are not higher than you or you give the bird a dominant position.

it is okay in case you do no longer clip it is wings, i locate it unnatural for a chook which became made to fly made to stroll all it is existence. do merely no longer open living house windows ect. close to the place your parrot maintains to be. set up extra have confidence with your parrot and supply him or her a cope with while it does some thing you choose it to do. It relies upon on success. prepare it to fly from it is perch to you via preserving some thing it likes to consume over your arm. i guess that those birds with clipped wings will no longer be able to get their birds to try this

Orla Originally Answered: Is it possible to learn or train yourself to be more poetic?
I think so and I certainly hope so because I'm in the same boat with you. I worked many years as a technical and scientific writer - even won awards for my technical writing. When I started writing fiction a little over 5 years ago my writing was very stiff. On the plus side -you recognize your weakness and are willing to work at it. One thing that helped me is reading a lot and examining what I liked. (I became a fan of Frederick Busch.) I realized when I read something I felt was really poetic it was because it moved me emotionally. Rather than trying to paint a picture with words, I think a more poetic writer makes a reader feel what it's like to be there. So it involved a little bit of a mind-set change. Instead of trying to describe things with adjectives or adverbs, I tried to think about metaphors and analogies. Checking and making sure every word counts and has impact. I joined a writers group and shared my writing and listened to and accepted the criticism of my fellow writers. It helped me make my writing flow more. So, yes I do think it's possible. Keep working.
